Delhi – Srinagar – Gulmarg – Agra

Best season to travel : April till September

Trip at a Glance:

Delhi  If trees and streets could talk, the stories that would pour out of Delhi would keep listeners mesmerized for years. After all, this is one of the world’s oldest cities, inhabited continuously from as far back as 2 BC. It has been the capital of dozens of empires, the royal playground for hundreds of kings, the site of furious battles and devastation, and the centre always of intrigues and power struggles that sought to control the rest of the country.

Srinagar  The summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir, is a city of lakes and waterways, gardens and picturesque wooden architecture.  The old quarters of the city sprawl over both sides of the Jhelum river crossed by seven bridges. At the city’s edge are the idyllic Dal and Nagin lakes linked by a network of backwaters.

Gulmarg or the “Meadow of Flowers” at a height of 9000 ft was developed by the British around a meadow on the northern flank of the PirPanjal mountain range.  The central bowl has been laid out as a gold course, one of the highest in the world.  Around it are fairytale cottages and pine forests.

AGRA was the seat of the Imperial Mughal court during the 16th and 17th centuries before the capital was shifted to Delhi. The city located on the banks of the Yamuna and along the Grand Trunk Road flourished under the patronage of the Mughal emperors.  Globally known as the city of the Taj Mahal, this royal Mughal city has, in addition to the legendary Taj, many other monuments that epitomize the high point of Mughal architecture.

Day 2 :      Explore Delhi

You can get no better introduction to the country than from its capital Delhi — no better insight into the diversity that is India. Immensely old and gleamingly modern; wide open spaces with bungalows and gardens at one end and narrow streets overflowing with shops and houses and people at the other; with a rich cultural heritage behind it and yet firmly placed in the 21st century when it comes to technology and business.

The British legacy of Lutyen’s Delhi formally divides the city into Old and New Delhi, each beautiful in its own way.  While Old Delhi is a maze of narrow serpentine lanes lined with shops, New Delhi with its wide avenues and colonial mansions was built by the British in the 1930s as their imperial capital.

Begin your day with a visit to Old Delhi to the 17th century Jama Masjid or Friday Mosque. This grand mosque with imposing marble domes and twin minarets was built in1656. A magnificent flight of sand stone steps lead to the great arched entrance.
